      Wow!!! Everything original on the car?

      Total repairs have been:
      Steering rack
      2 sets of ball joints
      Starter
      One battery
      Lots of tires
      4 sets of brakes
      L. control arm bushing
      Trailing arm bushings
      front struts, rear shocks

      I'm pretty satisfied with it so far... lol

      That's excellent!!!

      Was the trailing arm bushing costly & difficult to replace?

      Our 2000 NB GLS manual has 183,000 miles and still humming along. Last month we finally replaced the clutch.

      Have replaced Mass/Flow sensor, battery, starter, tires, water pump, timing belt, rear brakes, ECM, bunch of little things around 80K under extended warranty. Amazed how well the last 100K miles have held up.

      I forget how much I paid for the bushings, the price wasn't too obscene. Maybe $130 for the pair?
      They were a bit of a pain to install, but I still did it in my garage at home.
      I'm going to be doing them again soon (Car is off the road for the winter now), I figure it'll be a good time since I'm putting lowering springs in.

      I bought a 2000 with 111K on it and a 2002 with 189K on it...both 2.0/auto...so, yes, there are ones nearing 200K out there that are still running decently...

      Lost my '99 in August with exactly 101,750 on her. She was a 2.0 5-speed that I got in April of '05. Loved that little car. Was hoping to see her to 200k+ Stupid Prius drivers...

      bought a '98 in November of 2010, with 14,758 miles on it. Dealer service records appear to verify the lo miles...only had 5,000 miles on it in 2003. Appears to have been someone's extra car for just running around town.
      I'm up to 25,000 miles now. Everything is running ok. I will probably do the timing belt service soon because of its age.

      My '01 NB 1.8T just passed the 200,000 miles today!!! Original motor & tranny.

      Needs to put up a Piggy Bank and collect a down payment for a 2017 Beetle.

      I have to say, I'm encouraged by the number of high-mileage NBs here.

      I'm still waiting to find the "right one"
